#BlogTour! #Review – Just My Type by Hannah Doyle (@ByHannahDoyle) @headlinepg @AnneCater

Day two of the ‘Just My Type’ blog tour is here, with me, TWG! Many thanks to Anne Cater for the blog tour invite, and to the publisher for the ARC. Here is my review:

Meet Jasmine.
– The quirky/cool photographer to a superstar blogger
– She’s going on a date with a SUPER hot guy on the London Eye tonight
– Best friend Mila is her wifey for life
– This millennial is #LivingHerBestLife

But fast-forward a few hours, and the reality isn’t quite so picture perfect. Jasmine hates her stuck-up blogger boss. She can barely afford rent in her stupid London flat. Her best friend seems to have all her sh*t together. Oh, and that date she was so excited about? She got dumped. On the London Eye. In the middle of a thunderstorm. With a bunch of tourists watching…

Best friend Mila decides that Jasmine needs a new ‘type on paper’, because Jasmine’s current criteria is so off that her dating history is one long line-up of fools. So Mila challenges Jasmine to look once, if not twice, at the guys who wouldn’t normally fit her ‘type’. With nothing to lose, Jasmine accepts. Maybe, just maybe, she’ll surprise herself.

What does TWG think?

I am a massive fangirl of Hannah Doyle and her on point, witty humour. So much so, that if she decided to hold auditions for her new BFF, I would be the annoying person RIGHT at the front, shaking my pom poms to get her attention. See – even ‘fangirl’ is too tame for this one!

‘Just My Type’ is full of one liners which will make you nod your head like a nodding dog. You’ll be agreeing to the types on paper, wanting to kick Jasmine’s boss into next week, and no doubt turning green with envy at places Jasmine has galavanted off to. Trust me, people keep asking me if I’m Hulk….

Now, the premise of this storyline is something I’ve read before, I’ve got to be honest. However, the way in which it all came together, including the empowering angle, made ‘Just My Type’ stand out from the rest. I was a bit worried that I was going to find the storyline a bit predictable, but thankfully that wasn’t the case at all. Don’t get me wrong, I wanted to slap the boss round the face on several occasions, and I wished that Jasmine would tell her where to go – she was vile!! That was where the empowerment and looking at life with hope, really came into it’s own, and it became very clear as to why Jasmine didn’t go and flush her boss’s head down the toilet..

Hannah Doyle puts the power into GIRLPOWER tens times over, creating characters which are just like you and me, whilst also filling her readers with hope and the belief to succeed, even when they feel as though the world and its wife is on top of them.

‘Just My Type’ is a poignant read about thinking with your own heart instead of following the masses. It’s about learning how to trust your own instinct and to believe that you can achieve anything, just as long as you try.

Yet another laugh out loud, warm and highly relatable read from an author to watch!
